    My weekend Detailing Skoda Octavia 2010

    Hello everybody.

    This is my second experiense using DA.

    The ferst time I did not achieve the desired results. I was all in the compaund, everything was dusty, I overheated and destroyed two pads (one DFC6, second no name came with DA). I worked at 5 speed but scratches did not go away. Use Ultimate Compaund and 3 in 1 Wax.

    Now I make 3 step polishing.
    I worked at 4 speed, priming the pad only a few drops and cleaned with brush after several passes. The dust was much smaller and finally the scruches disappeared.
    Result photos below.

    Car:
    Skoda Octavia 2010, 275 000 km, the color is Magic Black Metallic

    Machines:
    Vonroc DA Polisher 21 mm with 6" Backing Plate and 3" Lake Country Backing Plate

    Correction:
    Rupes Blue Foam Coarse pad 180/150 mm
    Meguiars 3" Foam Polishing pad
    Meguiars Ultimate Compaund

    Polishing:
    Meguiars DFP6
    Meguiars Ultimate Polish

    Last Step Product:
    Meguiars GoldClass Carnauba Plus Premium Paste Wax

    Before

    After





    I would be grateful for the advice and comments.
    Thanks!

    Great to hear you are feeling more confident in your ability using a D/A machine. A couple gut recommendations I saw I could mention from your description is 1, you may consider frequently cleaning your pad with a air compressor blow gun compared to a brush. A blow gun (we use OSCA approved) will remove much more spent residue stuck in your pad than a brush will. 2) do not be afraid to use a more aggressive compound or pad if needed. Modern Clear Coat Paint Systems in many cases are very resilient & require a more "aggressive" approach, especially if the defects are heavy/severe and your goal is to get best results. Some examples would be Meguiar's D/A Microfiber Cutting Disc & D300 D/A Microfiber Correction Compound.

    Hope this helps & feel free to keep us updated. You are also welcome to video tape yourself using the machine & post it here, and we can critique your technique if you would like.

    Thanks Nick for your answer.

    Yesterday I answered your message, but I do not see it, so I will repeat it.

    Thanks for the advice and suggestion, I will definitely use them. In the near future I plan to polish my car (white Seat) or black Toyota or both :-)
    I will definitely post the whole process on the forum and try to make a video.
    Regarding your comments, I dont have a compressor yet, can i compensate for its absence with a large number of pads? (I ordered several DFC6 and DFP6). Use a new pad after each element or several.
    I've been looking at the DMCKIT5 for a long time, I think it will be faster and more convenient. I think it's worth buying.

    Thanks again for the help and advice.

    You are the BEST!

    Great start. nice work!

    I like Nick's advice. I've been a huge fan of
    Meguiar's D/A Microfiber Cutting Disc & D300 D/A Microfiber Correction Compound
    Since it very first came out!

    Follow behind that with a soft foam pad and a finishing polish and it can create excellent results.
